Skip to comments.A Thanksgiving Message to All 57 States (Sarah Palin Responds to 'North Korea' Media Smear)
Posted on 11/25/2010 5:17:31 PM PST by kristinn
My fellow Americans in all 57 states, the time has changed for come. With our country founded more than 20 centuries ago, we have much to celebrate from the FBIs 100 days to the reforms that bring greater inefficiencies to our health care system. We know that countries like Europe are willing to stand with us in our fight to halt the rise of privacy, and Israel is a strong friend of Israels. And lets face it, everybody knows that it makes no sense that you send a kid to the emergency room for a treatable illness like asthma and they end up taking up a hospital bed. It costs, when, if you, they just gave, you gave them treatment early, and they got some treatment, and ah, a breathalyzer, or an inhalator. I mean, not a breathalyzer, ah, I dont know what the term is in Austrian for that
Of course, the paragraph above is based on a series of misstatements and verbal gaffes made by Barack Obama (I didnt have enough time to do one for Joe Biden). YouTube links are provided just in case you doubt the accuracy of these all too human slips-of-the-tongue. If you cant remember hearing about them, thats because for the most part the media didnt consider them newsworthy. I have no complaint about that. Everybody makes the occasional verbal gaffe even news anchors.
Obviously, I would have been even more impressed if the media showed some consistency on this issue. Unfortunately, it seems they couldnt resist the temptation to turn a simple one word slip-of-the-tongue of mine into a major political headline. The one word slip occurred yesterday during one of my seven back-to-back interviews wherein I was privileged to speak to the American public about the important, world-changing issues before us.
If the media had bothered to actually listen to all of my remarks on Glenn Becks radio show, they would have noticed that I refer to South Korea as our ally throughout, that I corrected myself seconds after my slip-of-the-tongue, and that I made it abundantly clear that pressure should be put on China to restrict energy exports to the North Korean regime. The media could even have done due diligence and checked my previous statements on the subject, which have always been consistent, and in fact even ahead of the curve. But why let the facts get in the way of a good story? (And for that matter, why not just make up stories out of thin air like the totally false hard news story which has run for three days now reporting that I lobbied the producers of Dancing with the Stars to cast a former Senate candidate on their show. That lie is further clear proof that the media completely makes things up without doing even rudimentary fact-checking.)
Hope springs eternal as the poet says. Lets hope that perhaps, just maybe, they might get it right next time. When we the people are effective in holding Americas free press accountable for responsible and truthful reporting, then we shall all have even more to be thankful for!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
- Sarah Palin
Nicely done Sarah, except where is the corpseman gaffe and his somehow conflating his “christian” faith with muslim. I guess it was too many gaffes and too little time for Sarah to incorporate all. Get Zero away from his “See and Say” and he confabulates gaffes like a machine gun shoots bullets.
For Barack, to err shows his humanity, a common touch of a gifted politician.
For Sarah, it shows she’s an idiot.
The MSM told me so it has to be true.
How could she leave out muslim faith one
Awesome, just awesome.
Ha! Touche Sarah!
All together now...
President Sarah Palin.
Has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?
Genius. The left hates to be laughed at. That’s why they despise Rush. Keep laughing Sarah!
Thanks for the post kristinn.
Go Sarah go.
Sarah Palin talking strait to the American people because the fascist media would never think of it, let alone actually do it.
There is no Free Press in America anymore - only a meulti-media advocacy group for one party’s political ascendancy to total and complete power.
Crushing defeat of the MSM - again.
Won’t be long before they start being honest about her.... naaaa - they’re way to libtardish.
Me, too. She doesn’t sit around and wait to be abused. She attacks. Love it.
Let the Left's Yakking heads wrap that entry around their bursting heads.
It's about time someone stood up to these idiots in the media and call them out for the hypocritical fools they are!
The US media is nothing more than a party propaganda organ.
I shared it on Facebook with the comment: Sarah, you are ineluctable.
I hope some of my lib friends take the bait.
Heee, I love how she takes an attack and turns it around with humor, and puts her critics in their place.
